Secret's Out Baby ContestWhen my sister-in-law found out she was pregnant, she was super excited. She knew that her husband would be, too, and wanted to share the news in a fun, memorable way, since this sort of thing doesn’t happen every day! She came up with the idea of putting a bun in the oven—literally. She put a bun on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven. When he came home from work, she asked him to put a frozen pizza in the oven for dinner. When he opened the oven, he was puzzled over what was in there. It wasn’t until he voiced the question, “Why is there a bun in the oven?” that it clicked.

Moments like these are treasured and retold for a lifetime. Share your story by entering our Secret’s Out Baby Contest. It’s simple to enter. All you have to do is tell the story of how you (or someone you know) made the big announcement to their spouse, family or friends that you were pregnant. Friends can vote on your entry via Facebook, Twitter or email, and the winner gets a $1,000 Visa Gift Card, plus $100 to use toward birth announcements at Pear Tree Greetings.

Sound easy? It is! And if you’re not the one having a baby, you can always vote! We’re accepting entries until August 31, so start writing.
